Poetry in action


Fiona McIntosh shines a warm light on Red Room Poetry's work.

Red Room Poetry blooms in the heart of Sydney and stretches its vines outwards across the country. We’re a small, dedicated team of seven (plus our valued vollies), led by Artistic Director, Tamryn Bennett. Our collective confidence in the power of people and poetry, along with our collaborative community, help us to thrive.
Our vision is to make poetry in meaningful ways and to illuminate and strengthen those nooks in society that are often cast in shadow. Sometimes, we have that light reflected back on to us.
From New Shoots through to Poetry in First Languages, you can find out all about our work in this sparkling feature write-up by Fiona McIntosh.
